Armijo Claims 4th Overall In First International Competition!

In a solid performance, Jesse Armijo - wearing his first US jersey - placed fourth overall at the Intact Edmonton Half Marathon, running 1:06:28 for the distance.  The Intact Half Marathon served as an international dual meet staged between the United States and Canada. Although both countries were out-shined by the dread-locked Ezykas Sisay from Ethiopia, the United States took a decisive team victory over Canada. We will post a link to Jesse's recap as soon as he returns.

Carlos Sanchez Race Report

Columbia Winery 10-K to benefit Seattle Childrens Hospital
August 20, 2016RACE report:
